I want to move the files record

No need for a MOVE of any flavor.

Either a) Define and externally described DS for the file - in which case any Read/Chain will aotomagically populate the DS whcih you can then output since it is a character field.

Or b) Use the V5R2 option to specify a DS as the result field on the Read/Chain which will load the DS and probably run faster.
